An employee at an Ancaster McDonalds has tested positive for the novel coronavirus, prompting a brief shutdown for cleaning and sanitation, the company said in a news release.

The restaurant has since reopened for drive-through and delivery service.

On May 29, an employee at the 1015 Golf Links Rd. location reported testing positive for COVID-19. McDonald’s Canada said it confirmed the report with local health authorities.

“Out of an abundance of caution, McDonald’s Canada made the decision to immediately shut down the restaurant for a thorough cleaning and sanitation by (third) party cleaning experts, WINMAR,” McDonald’s spokesperson Ryma Boussoufa stated in a news release.

The company said the infected employee last worked overnight from May 26 to May 27, from 11 p.m. to 7 a.m.

All employees who may have been in close contact with the employee have been asked to self-quarantine. Patrons who visited the restaurant on May 26 or 27 are asked to follow advice from Ontario Public Health.

In March, an 18-year-old female employee at an Upper James Street McDonald’s was charged after police alleged she fabricated a COVID-19 diagnosis. Prior to charges being laid, the restaurant took immediate safety actions by closing the eatery and sending all employees home to self-isolate.
